Green Potions,(OoT | MM | TWW)[1] also known as Medicines of Magic or Magic Medecines,(ALttP)[1][2] are recurring Potions in the The Legend of Zelda series. Green Potions are used to replenish Link's Magic Meter. When consumed, they completely fill the Magic Meter regardless of how much Magic is needed. They are generally less expensive than the Red and Blue Potions.

Location and Uses

A Link to the Past

Medicines of Magic can be bought at the Potion Shop in northeastern Hyrule for 60 Rupees in A Link to the Past. These Potions can also be acquired for free by throwing a Bottle into the Mysterious Pond of the Waterfall of Wishing. By answering the Great Fairy's question honestly, she will reward Link by filling the Bottle with Medicine of Magic.[3]

Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, Green Potions can be bought along with Red Potions and various other Bottle items at the Medicine Shop, which is found in Hyrule Castle Town when Link is a child and in Kakariko Village when Link is an adult. They cost 30 Rupees. They can also be bought from Business Scrubs in various Secret Grottos around Hyrule, along with Red Potions, for 40 Rupees each.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Green Potions can be bought at the Trading Post in West Clock Town, and from Kotake at the Magic Hags' Potion Shop in the Southern Swamp. They cost 30 Rupees at the Trading Post, but only 10 at the Magic Hags' Potion Shop. They can also be bought from a Business Scrub in Zora Hall for 40 Rupees, but only while Link is in Zora form.[4][5][6]

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, Green Potions can be bought for 10 Rupees at the Chu Jelly Juice Shop on Windfall Island, but are not available at first. Link must first supply Doc Bandam with 15 Green Chu Jellies.[7] Afterward, Link can get a free Green Potion if he brings Doc Bandam five more Green Chu Jellies.[8]

Twilight Princess

Although Green Potions does not appear in Twilight Princess, a Green Chu Jelly can be obtained from Green Chus in the Wii and HD versions. It has no effect when drunk. Green Chus only appear when a Blue and Yellow Chu merge in the Wii and HD versions of the game (they create a Purple Chu in the GameCube version), which can only occur in the Cave of Ordeals.
